Go to Registration
Dates, Times & Location
November 22, 2014, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 AM - Sacramento, CA, US

This workshop is for anyone with an addictive disorder or their family members or friends. Many people who are committed to recovery end up drinking or using again despite their best intentions. Knowledge is Power! In order to avoid future relapse you must develop certain skills. In this day of relapse prevention planning you will learn how to identify and manage self-defeating ways of thinking that justify a relapse such as: The Inner Saboteur, Monkey Mind, The Committee in the Head, or Denial. You will also be guided through a strategic process of developing an insurance policy called the Relapse Intervention Plan (RIP) as well as learning how to identify and manage high risk situations that could lead to a relapse process.

  1. Learn how the relapse cycle always starts with a return to denial, which happens long before alcohol and drug urges, cravings or use.
  2. Learn how to develop a Relapse Intervention Plan that acts as an insurance policy in case you get in trouble with your recovery or even start to drink or use again.
  3. Review the most common high risk situations—also known as relapse justifications—that could get you in trouble, become dysfunctional in recovery and eventually use again.
  4. Understand the process of how to manage high risk situations in order to avoid a future relapse and gain some immediate tools for your future success.
